Lyon is a historical city with a vibrant cultural scene as the birthplace of cinema, the silk capital of the globe, and the second biggest Renaissance city following Venice.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cite du Chocolat Valrhona and Cite medievale de Perouges. We've included these beaches for you: Plage de Chatillon and Plage de Conjux. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lyon: Abbey of Cluny (in Cluny), Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives) and La Roche de Solutre (in Solutre-Pouilly). There's still lots to do: stroll through Parc de la Tete d'Or, find something for the whole family at Mini World Lyon, and see the interesting displays at Fresque des Lyonnais.

For more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, read Lyon day trip planner .

In July, daily temperatures in Lyon can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
